Hello everyone, it's been a while. I really appreciate all the kind words that I've received, I like talking hoops with you guys. So... My season is officially over and we get about three weeks to breathe and start assessing for next season. I spend about 3 hours on recruiting a day, and I'll be on the road towards the end of the month all across the Eastern part of the USA. Personally, I'll be looking to applying for a few bigger jobs. In fact, I'll be heading to the Final Four this year to try and get some connections. I have a couple leads. Side note: To get a bigger assistant job in college, you usually got to deliver some players. For those who don't know, the Final Four is where a lot of stuff goes down in regards to coaching hires, and you get all the coaching gossip when coaches go to bars and start drinking. Coaches angle for new jobs, and try to figure out who's getting who for next year. This will be my second year going and I'm pretty excited. I expect to hear more about some of your all's potential future Cats within the month. So far, I've been fed pretty accurate and have shared some pretty good information with you all. It's been busy, but probably what I have isn't anything earth shattering, so for the sarcastic out there, save it. haha. 1. I really think Bamba is going to eventually be at UK. It just makes the most sense. He will change the game defensively. Quade and Diallo are playing a big factor in this recruitment. I've heard some whispers that Texas is still pretty strong, but that could be old news...time will tell. 2. Funny story, I was told that Cal told Quade that he would have failed him if he's not one and done. Easy to see why Cal gets all the big names. UK is also recruiting a 2018 point guard and telling him Quade is leaving after one. So that's the plan. Also, I think this point guard may pull the trigger this spring. 3. Knox- I just don't know a whole lot more. UNC, UK, FSU in that order if you had to make me pick. Anyone's game. Family is big on this decision. Got to respect that. 4. You all make like this, but Duke is getting absolutely BLASTED on the recruiting trail. Player development is being harped. Also interesting that some schools are using examples such as Grayson Allen on why Duke tries to hold their kids back. Not sure it's going to be all that strong of a pull, but I know the word is out. Oh, and I've heard Giles may be back next year. 75/25 stay is what I was told. 5. NC State is going to find a pretty good coach I think. They're about to throw some serious money at Archie Miller. I wouldn't take that job, but who knows? Funny thing that people don't realize is that NC State has a really large fan base. 6. Jay Wright from Nova is putting out feelers to the NBA. Looks like he's trying get a big pay day and an easier job. Oh lastly, I will be rooting for Kentucky in the tournament.
